Are We Forced To Participate In Capitalism?

You Are Not Paid According To Much You Work But Rather   According To How Much Value You Contribute To Your Fellow Humans

“Our participation in Capitalism is forced because food, water, clothing, shelter, and healthcare are withheld from those who don’t have money.”

All those things you mentioned must be produced by the labor of other human beings. If you truly believe that you are being “forced” to buy them, then you must be implying that you believe you are entitled to receive them for free. If it costs resources and labor to produce a good or service, how can you be expected to receive it for free? This is not logically consistent.

If you produce a good/service you are naturally able to sell it, barter it, or give it away for free. That is your choice and prerogative if you are the producer. You cannot expect or force other people to serve you without giving something in return. To do so would be the initiation of force and is the quintessence of slavery. In this case you would be the aggressor. In your pursuit of justice, take care to not become the embodiment of the wicked.

Free Market Capitalism is the voluntary consensual exchange between peaceful individuals. The only reason that both parties would consent to trade is because they both feel they will benefit or profit as a result. Over centuries and millennia this is how wealth is created and standards of livings rise. If you want to see more peace in the world then you must do all that is in your power to celebrate voluntary consensual exchange and condemn coercion and threats of violence. Know your enemy. In so doing we can focus on building a sublime tomorrow that we would be proud to pass down to our progeny.

About Danilo

A practitioner of Eastern Healing arts with degrees in Acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs, I have always questioned the status quo, a path which led me to peaceful anarchism. Through my journey, I have worn many hats, that of a classical pianist, avid chess player, philosopher, comedian, and now father of two little anarchists. My wife brands me as a Cultural Critic, but I am simply following my thirst for knowledge and passion for writing.
